Oil Free Clay Mask

Introduction

This mask is definitely more fluid than the Soothing Clay Facial Mask, easier to apply and cool on the skin.

This was made on the blog on March 19th, 2009.

Ingredients

          35 grams of Water
          5 grams of Hydrovance
          0.5 gram of Liquid Germall Plus
          10 grams of Rose Hydrosol
          5 - 10 drops of Lavender, Bulgarian, Essential Oil
          49.5 grams of French Green Clay

Equipment

          Scale
          Transfer Pipette
          Spoon
          Mixing Bowl
          Containers

Instructions

Weigh liquid items into mixing bowl and stir briefly. Weigh clay either directly into liquids or into a separate bowl to be added to liquids. Stir. At first, the mixture will look like pancake or waffle batter with all the bubbles. Don t worry! Walk away from the mixture for 5 to 10 minutes. If you keep wanting to check the mixture, then do something else like roll the laundry, run a load of dishes, check your e-mail, walk out to the mailbox, dance a crazy person around the house, etc. :-) Now come back to check and stir your mixture. There arent many lumps or bubbles as there were before. Clay needs time to absorb all of the water. Just ask any good mud pie maker about giving clay the necessary time to absorb water. The mask is smooth and ready to put in jars.

Yield
